an autograph to michele bachmann. so he was a huge hit on the house floor and now that he's returned. >> bill: yeah, right. >> any extra campaign money. never hurts. >> it was a real circus when he showed up because people only had about 20 or 30 seconds at a time and he's walking between the house floor and the private room so all of the press wanted to get something from him and the reporters were tripping over banisters and chairs, cameramen's lens popped right off and flew in the air. it is a real wild time with paul ryan power walking through the house last week. >> bill: i saw congressman charlie wrangle at a reception last week, the evening of paul ryan's triumphant return to the house and charlie was telling me that when he walked in, all of the republicans are -- they stand, they're applauding, they walked down to the well. they're applauding and charlie walked right down there with them and paul ryan spotted charlie wrangle and said what are you doing here and charlie says no, no, no, i want to thank you, too.
